Shooting Victim’s Husband Files Lawsuit


The husband of a woman that became a victim of a police shooting has filed a lawsuit against both the police force and against the officers involved in the lawsuit. The woman was shot by a Henderson police officer during a traffic stop according to reports.

Zyber Selimaj, who is an ice cream truck driver, claims that his wife, Deshira Selimaj, was attempting to help her husband, who was born in Armenia, to communicate with the police when she was shot by the officer a year ago. He had been pulled over for a minor traffic violation.

However, police report that the forty two year old woman raised a knife in the direction of another officer before she was shot, and an inquest jury later said that the shooting was justified. However, the lawsuit contests this version of events and accuses the officers of trying to cover up an unlawful killing.

The husband of the victim is now seeking twenty five million dollars in damages as a result of the shooting, and his attorney has stated that as a result of the incident his client’s life has been ruined.
